Also take a look at these safety tips before you hit the road! HAVE AN AWESOME AND SAFE SPRING BREAK! SPRING BREAK SAFETY TIPS Wear a seatbelt and stay alert when driving! Defensive driving is the best way to drive! Reserve hotel rooms above the 1st floor. Why? Because First floor rooms are easier to break into. Don’t go to the ATM at night. Same with gas stations.
